It was a charming restaurant with traditional cuisine and service. We four persons tried to order food as varied as possible, I could not say all those were suitable for our taste,but they were well-cooked and served. It was a nice experience to have a dinner there.

It's a visit to a lost world, a lost culinary world, which was put paid to by decades of poor soviet supplies, which now has re-emerged. This place has a real sense of authentic cultural heritage, with a copy of the original book in the restaurant to bring it that much closer. It is located in a residential area, so... More

I went here with my distributors and was pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is a very traditional style restaurant...old school. Fine linen, proper waiter, silverware, cloches over the food.....a pianist playing expertly in the background. Truly delightful. The menu had a good listing of traditional Russian food as Mrs Molokhovet would have written about in the 19th century....I had to try... More

Our reservation was confirmed by the restaurant for Sunday 20 September, reconfirmed a week before and when we showed up the place was closed!! Restaurant didn't even bother to inform us - very upsetting and utterly unprofessional.

The formal but very welcome dining room and jean clad waiter with braces seemed incongruous but both were delightful. The food was definitely the very best we had in Russia and all the food we had everywhere was excellent. This place provides fine Russian dinging at its' very best and is well worth the money.

Classic old school Russian dishes. Excellent service and a piano player who will try anything if you him a few bars and he's heard it before. The meat salad with beets was an extraordinary appetizer. Stroganoff and fish pie also exemplary.
